Complete Licensing Limited is committed to trading within the law and maintaining the highest ethical standards. We have an obligation to put in place and maintain policies and processes to prevent bribery (Bribery Act 2010) and corruption and to conduct business with integrity. The directors, staff and consultants of Complete Licensing Limited recognise the risk of bribery and corruption across corporate and public life. To combat any such behaviour the following policy has been adopted:
Complete Licensing Limited prohibits the offering, giving, the solicitation or the acceptance of any bribe, whether cash or inducements, to or from any persons or company, whether they are public official or body, private person or company to gain any commercial, contractual or regulatory advantage in an unethical way or to gain any personal advantage, pecuniary or otherwise for the individual or anyone connected with the individual.
For the avoidance of doubt this includes:
(a) the making of facilitation payments to government officials, including (but not limited to) in order to secure or accelerate routine government procedure;
(b) making payment to any other business to secure a commercial advantage;
(c) authorising or providing travel benefits, gifts, entertainment, or political contributions for the benefit of a government official or other business contract without compliance with company policy regarding business hospitality and gifts or failing to follow due diligence procedures;
(d) entering into a consultant or sales agent agreement that will result in contact with government officials or other business contact without conducting due diligence, obtaining the required internal business and legal approvals, retaining all due diligence for six years and accurately recording on our records all related payments; or
(e) making any incomplete or false or inaccurate entries on our books and records.
No staff member shall accept any form of financial reward, gift, inducement or other pecuniary advantage from any person, business, or other corporate body.
